Court Reporter in Sumter County, SC | 803-670-8649 | South Carolina Stenographers
It’s a frequently asked question: What does a court reporting agency do and what are the services that a full-service court reporting company can provide? After all, not all court reporting firms are created equal, and not every court reporter will meet your needs, expectation, or budget.
In a nutshell, a national full-service court reporting agency like ours provides certified and/or licensed court reporters, stenographers, and interpreters, as well as related services like legal videography, video conferencing solutions, and secure online document management. On the other hand, a local court reporting firm is likely to be limited to finding local solutions, which can be limiting if your legal work extends beyond your own metropolitan area.
That’s why it’s advantageous to build a relationship with an established, national court reporting agency that has the size and resources to assist you whenever your legal work takes you. For over 20 years, we have excelled at meeting the expectations of our clients and providing them with accurate transcripts of depositions, arbitrations, mediations, and other types of legal hearings. Whether you’re from a small law firm, a large law firm, or work for a corporation, we can help meet your court reporting needs anywhere in the United States.

Online Case Management as a Legal Advantage South Carolina
As you probably know, technology has had a profound impact on legal work and the speed in which it can be completed. That’s why lawyers who can stay organized and quickly access all relevant information are the ones who end up winning the argument or the case at hand.
This is yet another reason it’s advantageous to retain a leading court reporting agency that can provide the technology to supply you with instant access to the documents you need for your deposition, arbitration hearing, or other legal proceeding. If you’re not yet able to do so, imagine being able to view your case information with just one keystroke on a computer—or on an iPad, iPhone, or any other mobile device connected to the Internet.
Online Access to Your Calendar, Transcripts, and Exhibits
Among our many capabilities, we can provide you with online and mobile access to everything related to your case, including:

Our secure online system allows you to view and download any materials you need—24/7. Only you and those individuals you designate (other attorneys, paralegals, and legal secretaries) have access to the highly sensitive materials related to your case in South Carolina.
Legal Videography | SC
As we’re sure you’re aware, video remains a powerful tool in legal proceedings and it’s frequently a difference-maker for attorneys arguing a case in front of a judge or jury of a defendant’s peers. An experienced and highly-skilled legal videographer can vividly capture every detail of a proceeding—the kind of detail that can make or break a case or help facilitate a positive outcome in settlement negotiation. Moving beyond the influence of a transcript or audio recording, high-quality legal videography can capture positive or negative body language, as well as facial expressions that are incongruous with the speaker’s tone of voice. It can also help reveal slight nuances that may be indicative of witness coaching.
And while the advent of mobile phones and other handheld video devices have led some people to believe that just about anyone is capable of filming a hearing or deposition, you don’t want to leave capturing mission-critical audio and video in the hands of an amateur. Professionals experienced in legal videography not only have access to specialized equipment that captures the best-possible quality audio and video but also has the experience to adjust on the fly if and when the recording environment changes during the course of the proceedings.
Our videographers utilize top-of-the-line lighting and sound equipment so that clients get the footage they need. Using high-gain microphones and multiple, high-definition cameras in a digital format, our legal videographers provide you with a polished video recording of your deposition that is synchronized with the court reporter’s transcript.
Of course, in cases where raw audio and video isn’t sufficient, we provide a valuable array of post-production services, including linear editing, nonlinear editing, and media enhancement, as well as audio & video conversion and duplication services for a variety of formats, including DVD, CD, and even VHS in SC.
Video Conferencing Technology | SC
Another area where technology has taken a great leap forward is video conferencing technology, which now enables you to take depositions from anywhere in the U.S. and still get much the same results as you would in person. And with video conferencing you can cut down on travel costs, lodging costs, and other expenses, and also avoid the hassle associated with getting all of the parties together for a deposition.
If you need a conference room for your hearing we can arrange that as well. Depending on the number of physical locations needed we can provide a single-site video conference or a multi-site video conference. We have access to hundreds of locations across the country and throughout the world, so scheduling a video conference that meets your needs is just a phone call away.
We will take care of the video conference setup (which includes location scouting, working out the logistics, supplying the A/V equipment, testing the equipment, and linking two or more locations). We also provide technical support before, during, and after your hearing so that you can focus all of your time and energy on your work. In fact, when you enlist our video conferencing services for a deposition or other legal proceeding, we will provide a detailed outline of all arrangements made and what you can expect. So call us and save time, money, and stress by using video conferencing for your next deposition.
Interpreting Services in South Carolina
As a leading court reporting agency, we also provide highly experienced interpreters to clients in need. Even in major cities, it’s not always easy for attorneys to find an interpreter who is capable of translating a particular language or a dialect at a moment’s notice. Thanks to our resources and extensive network, we provide qualified interpreters during the time frame you need them.
Certified Court Reporters Available for Any Language or Dialect
In fact, in this day and age—when it seems as if more and more parties to lawsuits or legal proceedings don’t speak English (or don’t speak English as a first language)—we believe that delivering a comprehensive court reporting service means removing any and all language barriers. That’s why we supply certified court reporters and interpreters for virtually any language or dialect, not to mention sign language for the hearing impaired.
We can arrange for interpreting and translation services for more than140 different languages, including romance languages like Spanish, French, Italian and Portuguese, plus other commonly spoken languages like Russian, German, Chinese, Japanese, and Arabic. We are prepared to provide real-time translation of attorneys’ questions, in addition to the translation of documents, a commonly requested service during the discovery phase of proceedings.
Retain a Qualified Interpreter for Your Deposition or Hearing
So whether you need an interpreter for a local case, an international deposition, an arbitration hearing, or the translation of a transcript or other document, we can make sure that your needs are met in a timely fashion.
